have the editorial director of india today, and a very big star blasters program, i enjoyed our encounter last year and expects similar feistiness, m.j. akbar. finally, we have paul madison, who is commander of the navy. thank you for joining us. when i was thinking about the title today and thinking about our panel, it occurred to me and i went online to find a chinese event is being held right now. there are no canadians, japanese, americans, on this panel. we don't have any chinese today, but we should have a lot of fun discussing strategy in asia pacific region with china, but i also want to acknowledge that that voice may not be with us today, but that could be giving us room to run. i went to china and visited with the ministry of foreign affairs and i met with their director and the finally said i cannot understand what the grand strategy is. this was about 2004. and i said, what is your grand strategy? and it was how to keep you guys distracted. [laughter] that seems to be shifting. one of the very interesting things, i know this is not a u.s. panel, but just two days ag
right now. we have strengthened our ties with india. the indian prime minister paying a visit to washington in 2009 was the official state visit. we have the strategic dialogue with india. we see india as a partner for the 21st century and welcome their effort to look east and play a larger role in asia, including the indian ocean. at the same time, we of help realize indonesia's potential as a global partner. there is an excellent relationship between the prime minister and the president. it has been a terrific partnership. third line of the effort, promoting regional cooperation, peaceful resolution of disputes and adherence to human-rights and international law. at a global level, the president strongly supported making the g-20 in the international forum for economic cooperation. this brought a into global economic decision making. -- asia into global economic decision making. president obama became the first u.s. president to join the east asia summit last year in bali. he will participate again this coming week in cambodia. this stress is a critically important aspect of
today. >>> now, still to come on the program, the latest gdp figures out of india have disappointed. we'll ask what it takes to boost growth now. >>> welcome back. these are your headlines. mario draghi turns up the heat on eurozone governments, says not to rely solely on the ecb. >> the crisis has shown that we were living in the fairy world in the sense that we underestimated our amount of our equilibrium. >> and a greek tee fault could be the end of the euro. and japan posts surprisingly strong industrial output in october and the government announces yet another stimulus package sending tokyo stocks to a seven month high. and president obama takes his case for tax hikes for the wealthy to the american people as the war of words between democrats and republicans over the fiscal cliff heats up. european markets not so much of a fairy world if we can use the draghi expression. a little higher. xetra dax leading the way up 0.3%. cac 40, ftse 100 on its heats. ibex 35 is lower. bond space shows pretty positive attitude, as well. yields falling in spain, italy again this morning. 5.35%, 4
there are good guys and bad guys, but there are guys the pakistans supports, the guys that india has supported, the russia has intended -- >> india is a big player here, fareed. because if you look through indian history from the guptas to the mull rans, the moguls, the dynasty, others, what you see is for many periods of indian history or subcontinent history, the same empire that controlled the northern third of india also controlled most of pakistan and half of afghanistan, so afghanistan is not foreign to india. it's part of the sub continental conflict system. so we can leave afghanistan, the u.s. can. but india, you will always have deep equities there and if we desert afghan precipitously, you might see india moving closer diplomatically to russia in order to contain things there, in order to make sure afghanistan does not become just a radical islamic extension of pakistani isi control. >> so we are on track in the united states to withdraw from afghanistan over the next two years. tell us what -- what emerges as we withdraw. >> what emerges is that iran will have much greater influenc
of his war policy, it would not reach those people. in annual growth in india of 1%. indians understand what this order was all about. they wanted the confusion of independence. from may, 1947 is important because it is the modern 1776. america is the oldest country of the modern world. the american constitution provided us with the template for classless democracy. it was not achieved immediately, but it was the template. india is important in 1947 because india is the oldest nation of the post-colonial world. the indian constitution creates an ideological template for democracy. with the emergence of india, china had a different template. very interesting, we see these comparisons, two parties, congress and the chinese communist party, became the dominant force in the post independents space. both had to be discriminated because both came from economically driven needs. the chinese offered autocratic left. but had karimov -- charismatic leaders. long story short,ke i i'm waiting for the short part. >> just a little bit longer. both had charismatic leaders, but i [indiscernible] but re
. people in southern regions of india are dealing with heavy rain. mayo show gee joins us with the latest. >> this is due to the influence of the cyclonic storm which has made landfall. let me show you a video coming up from these regions. wednesday evening it made landfall and reported a maximum wind speed of 75 alcohol tears per hour err you can see those trs really swaying. the good news is that there's no significant damage that has been reported related from this storm system. but schools and colleges will be closed in the surrounding areas throughout your thursday. if we can pull back i can show you this storm will be moving inland as a deep depression. it has downgraded already. but the rainfall accumulation is going to be some staggering amounts the next few days, probab about 200 millimers on top what was we have aea be seeingn and around this area, more than 100 millimeterth in the past 24 hours has been falling. so the ground is very, very loose. any kind of additional rain fall could trigger flash flooding and further landslides across east regions. the wind, gale force winds,
to india and that have to do with a sequence of events that will take place after 2014 when the american focus once again as steve mentioned when the american focus becomes somewhat less the relationship through the counterterrorism and opens the door for the more creative ways of business, academic, a media that have really suffered in the last ten years. so i guess i come out to your question answering that i'm cautiously optimistic if we can keep things on the rail which you know what will happen over the last ten years isn't an easy thing and it's like rolling down the side do would be and you don't know how for the region goes so keeping things on track it isn't easy to keep things on track in pakistan because of the way that it's mismanaged and because of the difficulties in the relationship, but if we are able to do so i think after 2014, there will be a prospect that we could open up to new kinds of cooperation if we are not slaves to a bilateral mission that is based on this trust but if we focus on the multilateral and the regional issues that will ultimately lead to economic g
also finished lower after the rba cut its growth forecast. most miners finished in the red. in india, the sensex still in action now lower by about 1%. but hopes of a stake sale. orient express hotels rejected the bid. investors cheered the news after they worry about the impact of the acquisition on its balance sheet. ross, back to you. >> i'll pick it up now. any euphoria the obama administration feels could be erased by the thought of getting obama'sed edagenda through and divided congress. you can get more at cnbc.com. china is awaiting their new government and apparently expressing their envy of the u.s. democratic process. plenty more at changing china.cnbc.com. and also on the website, iranian warplanes fired an unmanned u.s. drone in international air space according to the pentagon. a formal warning was sent to tehran you through diplomatic channels. if the drone were hit it could have forced retaliation from the u.s. so against this backdrop, we want to know which of these stories is most important for the months ahead or is it something else entirely that we're not yet foc
interested in how you describe the evolving relationship with india and china. what do you see as the qualitative differences between india and china? you described india as a strategic partnership. china is something else. there is more of an element of competition when you describe the relationship with china. this is nothing like that when you describe the relationship with india. is it too much for us in southeast asia to expect that one day there will be a strategic partnership between the u.s. and china? >> thank you. the relationship with india is rooted in history and it is rooted in a shared system of democracy. it is a unique relationship that we are building out. it has different aspects to it. their relationship with china is more complex. we are trying to build a relationship that is important to both nations in the world between two systems that are very different. working that through it is one of the great challenges we have. we are trying to build a relationship between the u.s. and china where there are elements of competition. we are trying to build a relatio
. we have the editorial director of india today and a real star of last year's program. i expect some similar feistiness. and finally we have vice admiral paul masson, commander of the royal canadian navy. thank you for 20 s. -- paul masson. when i was thinking about our panel, i went online to find a chinese event looking at the u.s. grand strategy, there are no canadians, a japanese or americans on china's panel. we don't have any chinese with us today but we should have a lot of fun discussion not only in national strategies but evolving in the asia-pacific region with china but i wanted to acknowledge that voice was not with us today. that might give us more room to run. because we don't have a chinese voice, some years ago i went to china and visited with the ministry of foreign affairs and met the equivalent of their policy planning director. finally i could ask china with its grand strategy is. this was about 2004. i said what is their grand strategy? they said and how to keep you americans distracted in small middle east countries. that seems to be shifting. one of the interes
. the china and burma india theater. and if the special operations started with the oss in china and world war ii. oss also established the foundation for some of the intelligence framework that pos it to china for example. they are a training of the younger experts and those peopl ter world war to become the leading authorities of the american intelligence as well as the government policy services, so those are very big contributions. they also have some other lessons and grounders as well. >> what was one of the blunders >> one of the things is that i would say oss is trying so hard to establish itself as legitimate. they're always trying to constantly. for example, its independence from the liberation intelligence. the are too reliant upon th british intelligence. now for the intelligence analysis to the intelligence service is also a flaw itself. it works both ways. that's because once you add this analysis to the service. it's very fanatical. in other words it is not just to inform, it is to predic
's relations with india, the issues that have to do with the sequence of events that will take place after 2014 when the american focus once again as steve mentioned, when the american focus becomes somewhat less a relationship through counterterrorism and opens the door for more creative ways of business, academic, media, other links with pakistan that have really suffered in the last 10 years because of our focus on ct pics i guess i come up to your question answering that i'm cautiously optimistic that if we can keep things on the risk in which if you know what happened over the last two years, it's not an easy thing, it was like rolling down the side of her routine with rocks and cactus is and you don't know how far the routine goes. so goes. so what is a keeping things on track, it is not easy to get things on track, pakistan. because of the way it's mismanaged, because of the difficulties in our relationship. but if we're able to do so i think after 2014 there would be a prospect that we can open up the new kind of cooperation, if we are not slaves to a bilateral vision, based on mistrust
. southeast asia is strategically important, located between china and india, and along the route of important sea lanes that power the world economy. it's also a growing market with a population of more than 500 million people. china has been trying to increase its political and economic influence in the region. the united states has to compete with that. by coming to southeast asia with this historic visit to myanmar and a presence here at the east asia summit, obama hopes to advance that agenda. >> now, what role did the u.s. play in the south china sea issue? and what is its agenda there? >> right. the philippines and vietnam are two asean countries in direct confrontation with china over the south china sea. they want legally binding rules to resolve the disputes. in the summit meeting, obama sided with them by calling for the quick creation of a code of conduct. but china remains cautious about that. asean nations need to work together for the sake of their economic goals. they also need peacef fuful relations with china, which, after all, is is the world's second largest economy. balanc
of gold in their collective pockets. but they're not alone. china look set to overtake india as the world's top gold consumer this year. meanwhile, china's icbc bank says that within an economy on the mend, rising domestic income and new gold linked investment products in the offing, china's potential as a global gold haven is huge. even the pboc appears to be in on the act. the london bouillon market association says beijing may be mulling options to tack on more gold to its reserves soon. >> joining us now from hong kong, martin henekyp what is the diwali effect for gold and gold prices? >> demand has been quite reasonable as was mentioned despite the relatively weak indian economy and weak rupee. but you can't blame them if the rupee is very weak, what would you do if you don't have trust in the currency going forward. and we just had actually the indianville production figures out, they were weaker than expected, actually down for september 0.4%. negatively an expectation of 2.8%. and at the same time, the consumer prices rose by 9.75%. so somewhat of a stagflation there, but the econ
greets the good in all of you. who knows where is this is from? india. today we are sharing an form. we are members of the dance company based here in san francisco and we are taught by somebody who has been doing this art form for over 50 years much the ladies including myself we have been studying with him for a long time. you will see different things. lots of sounds with our feet. a little bit of story telling through mime and expression and you will learn about math in dance. who would have thought. today we will start, our next piece means the coloring of the stage. dancers show the hindu aspect of the dance by using the positions of our hands we will show you we are decorating the stage and make a water picture and cleaning the stage with the water. plucking flowers and decorating the stage with the petals of the flowers. we will awaken the 5 senses through the blowing of a conch shell. we will demonstrate the 3 duty, creator, producer and the destroyer in order to make way for new creation.

as far as the emerging market countries like india and china which have been the drivers for growth, and with the slow down coming in, nestle does 1k3ek9d that to ease just a bit. be he continues to be confident and very clearly suggesting that nestle will not sacrifice margins to go after volumes or market share. here's what paul volcker had to say in this exclusive interview. >> we're in for quite a few more year. the debt crisis in europe is not something that has been built overnight, so it won't be a solution overnight either. but also the positive trecnds ae there to stay. it is a dynamic that will be positive for a long time. i'm always an optimist. i think you have to be. >> and you're hoping the emerging markets will continue to drive growth. in fact that's the difference in comparison because it's really been your emerging market growth driving sales for you. but i want to pick up on that because we've actually seen in asia, africa, sales down. you also believe china because of the way the chinese economy has slowed down as not delivered as per your expectations or its tru
aspect of that. for example, offered the most successful u.s. special operations in china, burma, india theater. and you can say, special operations started with dos as experience in china during world war ii. and oss also established some of the intelligence from work, the approach to china, for example, the file data system, there training of the young your experts, and those people after rld war to become the leading authorities of maritime intelligence as well as government policy. so those are very big contributions. also some other lessons and some big blunders as well. >> what is one of the blunders? >> well, one of the things is i will say, oss in trying so hard to establish itself as legitimate, tried to prove to others, always constantly trying to prove to others it's worth the importance. in doing so, sometimes the sacrifice of the original mission. for example, its independence om the british intelligence, true reliance upon the british intelligence. the other thing is, oss success
. in the past 2.5 years i of taking trade missions to africa, indonesia, the gulf, china, india, brazil, japan, and malaysia. the late lord mayor has been doing the same, visiting no fewer than 26 countries during his year in office. now i know there are some people who say this is not real foreign-policy, or worse still, it is just loading policy. -- globe-trotting. i believe there is a race to when britain and leading from the front. i make no apology from linking britain to the fastest-growing parts of the world. i am proud of the fact that in just two years british exports of goods to brazil are up 25%, up 40%, russia up 80%. last week we took steps towards a new defense partnership with united arab emirate that could be worth more than 6 billion pounds to british industry. i want us to go further still. when i look around the world, i see countries like germany using overseas business that works to drive new business. in brazil, for example, 1700 members of the german chamber. 1700 members of the u.s. chamber's. how many does the u.k. have? just 240. we need to do all whole lot better tha
emerging powers as its neighbors, china and india. it is about a country in transition. the message he gave to burma is in the city has given to the middle east as well. >> how much of the visit was about trying to contain china and show if the u.s. will be a player in the region? >> it reinforces the dynamic of the administration with burma, cambodia, vietnam, welcoming and encouraging the united states to be engaged in asia as a balancing force against a rising china. >> you work at the state department during negotiations. what was driving it then? >> it is a globalized world. when you have countries in isolation, they are capable of doing nasty things. burma has a relationship with korea. there was concern in the first two years burma was giving significant assistance to north korea and undercutting the strategy of isolating the country. being able to flip burma puts additional pressure on a country like north korea. >> how does the u.s. measure progress toward democracy? what does it do if berman stepped back? >> now the united states has diplomatic relations with burma. it can achieve
with a stable outlook for india. the agency mentioned a list of positives including india's high savings and investment rates, large diverse economy, but moody's did warn of credit challenges posed by india's weak infrastructure, high government debt and inflation. also under pressure partly due you to the country's strong reliance on imported crude. india is the world's fourthimpo may be some relief in sight. cnbc has more on the story live from new delhi. >> so this is a really big asset when talking about the field. field one will be producing 400,000 barrels a day. phase two producing 1 million barrels of oil every day. and conoco phillips announced an agreement for the $5 billion deal, but i would like to point out this deal is far from done. there are plenty of consortium partners when you're talking about it. for example shell, exxonmobile, all holding a a little over 16%. it will require all consortium partners. become when bp wanted to exit, in the end actually bought the stake, so we'll have to perhaps see a lot of work being done by conoco phillips to convince the partners to
bilateral security and partnerships, and on the accumulations with the big states in asia, like china, india, indonesia. so the challenges are enormous. frankly, the strong leadership from the white house, secretary clinton. we've been able to do a lot, and i think build on some remarkable achievements of the previous administration, including opening to india. i would say so those are the opportunities. ironically for me the biggest challenges are the personal ones. i had a wife was also a senior administration official, and we have young children. and trying to balance figuring out how to be in certain places when you've got pressing either international or domestic kind of family business is remarkably difficult to there's a let down when you're not there for certain things, or the embarrassment when you're diplomatic interlocutor on the phone here's your daughter screaming at the top of her lungs as your trying to negotiate some aspect of an agreement. so i would say, victor, with -- i'm not the one screaming. it's my daughter. [laughter] although it has happened the other way around. so
want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. india, china, brazil, ishares, small-caps, large-caps, ishares. industrials. low cost. every dollar counts. ishares. income. dividends. bonds. i like bonds. ishares. commodities. diversification. choices. my own ideas. ishares. i want to use the same stuff the big guys use. ishares. 9 out of 10 large, professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. introducing the ishares core, etfs for the heart of your portfolio. tax efficient and low cost building blocks to help you keep more of what you earn. call your advisor. visit ishares.com. ishares. yeah, ishares. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. can i still ship a gift in time for christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stress. ship fedex express by december 22nd for christmas delivery. >>> welcome back, everybody. we are in chairs this morning lo
a commercial hub linking markets in india and bangladesh with southeast asia. >> analysts say china will be paying close attention to this visit highlighting the delicate struggle for power being played out in this region. >> all we would have to do is add vietnam and it would be a very clear signal about china improving relations with allies. certainly it's going to be some that china will be paying close attention to. >> pepsi, coca-cola and ge have already begun to invest p about. >> ge is very excited about myanmar. we've been following it for a couple of years. big population. 60 million. large land mass. a lot of natural resources. so it was great to see the country begin to open up. >> what did you say to some of the critics, do you say myanmar hasn't opened up enough yet to encourage the kind of investment that ge is putting in to the country? >> i think problem and secretary of state clinton's visit shows the support from around the world. for continuing on the reform path. so i think they'll make it. it's probably not going to be as fast as everybody would like to see. but
and asian viewers today. still to come, india's parliament has opened its winter's session for what could be a tough first day back to business for the prime minister. we'll find out what opposition he faces from our correspondent in mumbai. we'll also find out why asian casinos are putting their chips on the table despite slow economic growth in the region. and obama saves cobbler, but many of his turkey friends will end up on the table today. we evaluate the cost of a thanksgiving dinner with a soft commodities expert. all of that and lent more coming up over the course of the next three hours. it's not just eurozone pmis. china's manufacturing activity expanded for the first time in more than a year this month. >> upbeat data today. according to the flash pmi, the country's manufacturing sector expanded in november coming in at 50.4. and that eat first time it went above the boom or bust level of 50 in 13 months. almost all the sub indices showed improvement. the output sub index also hit a 13 month high at 51.3. and the latest reading follows a series of data showing stronger exports
in the countries, brazil, russia, india, bringing in europe, and do real nation building through economic means so you don't end up having a cold war with china or russia or entering a new gray war with al qaeda or intervention in syria or war with iran. let us hope those are not the foreign policy markers of a second term. he has a chance here. not for cold war with china, but to rebuild because china's going through terrible social instability, economic growth is plummeting. a whole series of issues to unit. >> it's worth mentioning the president announced the return of the u.s. to the tune of 170 million for projects over the next two years and that is something i'm sure the burmese welcome with open arms, but at the end of the day i think he probably could have gone with empty hands and still receive the reception he had which was people flooding the streets. reports of six and seven people deep on the sidewalks as his motorcade passed by. >> that's right. china has been offering a lot of cash, doing a lot of projects there. a lot of chinese business people in burma. china very much wants acce
of egypt, india, algeria and africa clearly did not forget the progressives' view of educated elites and by their definitions were close to, quote, unworthy of life, unquote. but these trends would marinate for a decade. in the meantime, american prosperity continued spreading to the rest of the civilized world. american advertisers, film, even literature became highly desired in europe. it's another irony at this time, american movies followed a production code that emphasized universal american themes of patriotism. god, fair play, and they avoided sensationalism, sexual situations and other taboo vices. american movies sold american sensualism including, quote, puritanical mormonism, as one put it. they occasionally made fun of those values through the work of buster keaton and charlie chaplin, but this was never meant to totally undermine the system itself. by 1930 the u.s. had 18,000 movie houses and compared to france's 2400 and britain's 3,000. europe simply could not compete with hollywood, and as long as hollywood sold american exceptionalism, europeans wanted to be like mik
, countries like china and india in the middle east will increase. the role that they will attempt to play is bound to increase, because debt supplies still comes from it. given the importance of the islamic world and the wealth that will accumulate in that region, there will be a continued interest in its stability. but the new security team here, what they will have to do is make a non-traditional assessment on the evolution to take place. some of this will depend on the period of 10 years to 15 years. will it be normal policy? or will the killer -- or will there be influence over what it will be? i expect that india will become a more active player in the region. >> dr. kissinger, earlier we were talking about a new country on the american foreign policy agenda. president obama is going there. something is happening. does it matter, is it important, how does it matter? >> burma has a very large population of resources being run by a military government. it is between india, china, and itself. it plays an important strategic role. china has been playing a considerable as it has not dealt
in the u.s. >>> next to fast news. >> a tropical storm dropped a torrent of rain on southern india and sri lanka. it claimed the lives of at least six people in the two countries. by thursday, 160,000 people have been displaced. low-lying areas were heavily flooded. an oil tanker ran aground just before the storm hit. one of the crew was reported drowned when a life boat capsized. coast guard officials say 32 crew members were rescued. they are still searching for the five missing. >>> people continue to flee violence in myanmar. the united nations says more than 28,000 people have been forced out of their homes in the latest wave of fighting. the conflict in the western state of rakine is pitting muslims. at least 84 people have died in the last two weeks, with more than 4,600 houses destroyed. u.n. workers are distributing food and emergency supplies in the area, but that job gets harder by the day as refugees stream into overcrowded camps. >> it's clearly urgent that law and order be restored so access is facilitated for aid to be delivered to those in need. >>> china's second stealth f

. analysts say the data shows china's growth slowdown may be bottoming out. over to india now where the picture is more clear. service sector growth slowed down in october to its slowest in six months. europe's recession and america's sluggish economy played a large role in cutting demand for india's services. the sector makes up 60% of the country's economic output. >> ministers and central bankers are meeting in mexico day one of the summit saw a focus in the debt woes and weighing's fiscal cliff. ministers pushed the u.s. to act decisively to solve the debt ceiling impasse calling it the biggest short term threat to global growth. also a key week for greece. today the government will present either new austerity package to parliament. yesterday they warned the country would be forced out unless the new spending cuts are passed. >> the european central bank is investigating whether they've broken their own lending rules. the central bank may have accepted t-bills as collateral that was ineligible. that means those banks may have to find a further 16 billion euros to put up as what

's in negative territory, in the he's, china, india, and about the only things that the rest of the world likes about america are movie, tv, science, and technology. they are not keen on the democracy, as least as america preaches it. heading now into another four years of the obama administration where are we, and why are we here, and how do we get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong? what's going right? what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. [laughter] well, fist of all, i don't think that favorability ratinging in the surveys are evidence of whether we are doing something wrong or right, and it's a huge mistake for anybody who practices public diplomacy to think that his or her job is to win a popularity contest. while i guess maybe some of us in the bush administration can take a certain pleasure at the fact that in 2008 the favorability ratings for the united states were higher and four out of the five surveyed arab countries, i'm not going to bring that up. [laughter] no, but i think it -- i think it's a big mistake, and, you know, in my view, and
. and india, your neighbor to the west. the united states will work with any nation, large or small, that will contribute to a world that is more peaceful and prosperous, more just and more free. and the united states will be a friend to any nation that respects the rights of its citizens. and the responsibilities of international law. that's the nation -- that's the world that you can start to build. here in this historic city. this nation that's been so isolated can show the world the power of a new beginning. and demonstrate once again that the journey to democracy goes hand in hand with development. i say this knowing that there's still countless people in this country who do not enjoy the opportunities that many of you seated here do. there are tens of millions who have no electricity. there are prisoners of conscience who still await release. there are refugees in camps where hope is still something that lies on the distant horizon. today, i say to you and i say to everybody that can hear my voice that the united states of america is with you, including those who have been for
and citizenship. peoples of egypt, india, algeria and africa clearly did not fit the presidency of educated elites and by their definition close to life unworthy of life, unquote. but these transfer marinade for a decade. in the meantime, american prosperity continues spreading to the rest of the civilized world. american advertisers come the film in the literature became highly desired in europe. it's another irony at this time. american movie saudi production emphasizes universal american team, sexualization, other top devices. american movie sold american exceptionalism, including puritanical moralist and as one observer put it. they occasionally need people such as keaton and charlie chaplin. is it is all done tongue-in-cheek to undermine the system itself. in 1832 u.s. at 18,000 movie houses and compared to francis, 2400 britain's 3000. europe simply could not compete with hollywood and american exceptionalism from the europeans want to be like mike. inflation, communist, agitation, ethnic unrest in the slow contradictions of versailles and cause the postwar european structure to crumble into
as chris indicated and a rising india. >> can i jump in here. >> you mention the architect forty years ago. work with -- [inaudible] put me in the group because i grow with exactly with the approach you just outlined. and it's rebounding to asia the administration done i think very successfully there were three myths and it relates to what you were talking about. one knit started in 2011, another myth it's essentially military and all of those against china. [inaudible] i'm sure kurt would agree. the reasons he just mentioned. it started in twiep and was because asia important generally not just china india and korea and japan and southeast asia whatever you want to talk about and the economy. and it is designed to welcome china and the pacific to contain china. they are difficult to deal with. lets place this relationship briefly in historical perspective. we had four or five decades since i was first on the secret trip. as you know ahead of -- when we went in. and we a certainly a con sect yule relationship with china. we didn't have diplomatic religion. no concrete exchange. mostly bala
, if the governors decide we're going to put all the money into india, it's their decision rather than the part of the more strategic decision-making process. congress would get involved if all the money went to one country. >> do you think? [laughter] >> there's certain country's bbg would like to get rid of that congress wouldn't allow and that sort of thing. but i'm guessing it really needs to be part of really part of the foreign policy apparatus. >> i want to open up to question. we have time for about 20 minutes. please keep them brief so we can get as many as possible. go ahead. >> first time i ever saw -- was 1967 in taipei at usia. it was in chinese. but now i work with two groups. one is dhi esper diplomats which serves the diplomatic community here in washington, and arranges events to show them what goes on you. also people to people international who post the foreign officers at the national defense university. was happen with this is weak, and we take these our homes and arrange events with them, then go back to the home countries and remember us. when diplomats wife went to thail
eclipse. in nigeria children swim in flooded streets. in india, a camel roams a deserted street after sunrise. and in chilchile, a solared pow car getting ready to compete. hot shots, pictures from around the world. kate bolduan is monitoring some other top stories in "the situation room" right now including a tragic ending to a parade honoring u.s. troops. what happened, kate? >> it's a horrible story, wolf. a freight train slammed into a truck carrying veterans and their spouses in a texas parade. four people died and 17 others were hurt in midland yesterday. federal authorities are investigating. initial reports show the train sounded its horn and the crossing gate and lights were working. but there are conflicting reports about whether or not the crossing arms actually were down. also, the coast guard is searching for two missing workers after an oil rig exploded off the coast of louisiana. eleven people were injured, workers were doing maintenance on the rig at the time. we're told it was not producing oil at the time. but 28 gallons of fuel spilled into the water. authorities do
it in the middle east, also china, it india. -- also india. the things that the rest of the world likes about america are movies, tv, science, technology. they're not keen on democracy as america preaches it. heading into another four years of the obama administration, where are we, and why are we here, and how do we get somewhere else? what went wrong, what is going right, and what to do about it going forward? >> first of all, i do not think that favorability ratings and the pew surveys of evidence of whether we're doing something wrong or right. i think it is a huge mistake for anybody who practices public diplomacy to think that his or her job is to win a popularity contest. well i guess maybe some of us who were in the bush administration can take a certain pleasure in effect in 2008, the favorability ratings for the united states were higher in four out of the five surveyed arab countries -- i am not even going to bring that up. [laughter] and it is a big mistake. in my view, and what i tried to do during my short tenure as undersecretary, is try to focus attention on what public diplom
china, india, indonesia. so the challenges are enormous, frankly, the strong leadership from the white house, secretary clinton, we have been able to do a lot, and i think build on some remarkable achievement through the previous administration including the opening to india. i would say. those are the opportunity. ierpically, for me, the biggest challenge are the personal ones. i have a wife who is also a senior administration official and we have young children and trying to balance figuring how how to be in certain places when you have, you know, pressing either international or domestic, you know, kind of family business is remarkably difficult. and, you know, there's the let down when you're not there in certain things or the embarrassment when you're diplomatic and on the phone, hears your daughter screaming at the top of heifer lungs as you're trying to -- i'm not. one screaming, my it's my daughter. [laughter] a lot it is happened the other way around. so i would say, you know, it's been a remarkable as you're going through each of our resumes and experiences it's been an incre
operations there. retail operations in countries like india, korea. they've been growing in excess of 15% to 20% a year, and in latin america where they've been growing in excess of 30%, this really gives us a leg up in geographic areas where we didn't have operating platforms. so you combine that with our $1.5 billion platform in europe and our $4 billion platform in north america, it really gives us a leg up on most of the other apparel. and competitors. >> we have steve tanger on. tanger factory outlet today. great partner of the calvin klein brand. you're going to keep that strategy, right? >> oh, absolutely continue to grow that business. we see ourselves with the jeans and underwear business in north america really being able to enhance that business. warnaco is a large company, but about $800 million in sales in north america. us with about four billion. clearly gives scale and leverage to the calvin klein jeans and underwear business. >> you have a heritage business. in their call they talked about a heritage business. i would have thought that you would have had no interest in s
,000 stores toward the end of the '13 calendar year in china. a week ago at this time, i was in mumbai, india, where we opened our first of three stores. so we're in a situation right now where, you know, again, i don't want to overstate anything given the backdrop of the economy, but the company is firing on all cylinders. we're very optimistic about the holiday season. as i said, we're beginning to see many of the things that we put in place in the u.s. business in 2008 during our own transformation beginning to take hold in western europe. it's going to be a long-term effort, but we're seeing the siti signs that give us cautious optimism. >> what about that european business and the just announced $40 million profit in 2011? but also, people are talking about a $60 million loss reported to tax authorities in the u.k., germany, and france. some are saying investors are being told one thing and the company is reporting something else. can you clarify this for us, howard? >> sure, i can. first off, i said from the very beginning when this thing was raised that starbucks and i and our cfo woul
to the u.s. ambassador to india, and executive secretary for the indo-u.s. sub-commission on education and culture. but even more impressive than his resume, is his obvious passion and commitment to fostering essential debate about tough issues. please join me now in welcoming dr. bouton, who, unfortunately for the chicago council, will be leaving there sometime next year. marshall will tell us more about the results of the fascinating new survey, will offer keynote remarks, and then we'll move to the panel. please welcome marshall bouton. [applause] marshall bouton: thank you jane very much. we're thrilled, we're honored, in fact the wilson center has agreed to partner with us in hosting the release of the council's 2012 study. this is a great institution now, very, very capably led by jane and we're delighted to have this opportunity to collaborate with you early in your tenure. so i have a really tough job and that is to try to present the findings of a rather exhaustive study of american thinking about u.s. foreign policy. i'm looking forward very much to the panel and to their com
and tensions with india. we have a real interest in trying to get afghanistan and pakistan right. second, there's a lot of discussion about american strategy in afghanistan. i think we've got a pretty sensible military strategy. john podesta and i thought we didn't have a good political strategy for getting a good electoral outcome in 2014 and get an afghanistan government that is legitimate and supported by the afghanistan people. so you have a strong government to whom to pass security responsibility for afghanistan in 2014. and we've written about that. i think that's very important, political piece between now and 2014. i think it's also very important for the administration to carry through on what it said it would do which is to leave a substantial military force on the ground in afghanistan after 2014. i'm reluctant to do that. america has sacrificed so much blood and treasure there and it is because we sacrifice so much blood and treasure is because we have to have a presence there on the ground because this cake is not going to be cooked by 2014. dwow not spend enough time focusing on
behind the vatican. in india, people watch fireworks at a park during the festival of lights. in florida, people wait in line for turkey as they prepare for thanksgiving. and in nepal, look at this, police dogs are decorated with paint and garlands for a hindu festival. hot shots, pictures coming in from around the world. >>> president obama's inauguration is still a couple months away, but with all the talk of scandal dominating washington right now, it's starting to feel like his second term has already begun. here's cnn's john berman. >> so, wolf, it took like 76 hours r the president's re-election to get subsumed in the whole petraeus/broadwell/alan/kelley mess. it may be the perfect introduction to the realities of re-election. it really is enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. >> reporter: president obama, you were just elected to a second term. what are you going to do next? go to disney world? doubtful. embark on immigration reform? possible. avoid the fiscal cliff? maybe. but if history has taught us anything, perhaps the first thing he should do is lawyer u
